OK, but not for a Guild

SimonDK, 17.11.2017
I know this is in the low end of Guild guitar, but still I was a little bit disappointed with how this guitar is build. Many places in the wood there were marks and in a lot of places where the parts are joint it is not done perfectly and the sound was thinner than I thought it would be. You can easily find other cheaper guitar brands that have a better quality check on their guitars like Yamaha or Fender.
But with that said, it is a fine guitar.

An alternative to the mica guitar

Nuuska, 10.01.2018
I tried this as an alternative to find a cheap, easily replaceable guitar that I could safely leave to the cottage - the 1975 F50R is not the same - there were also two other guitars.

The guitar comes with a handy carrying case that is quite sturdy for normal transport. The player arrived on a freezing day and was still almost in tune. Right after the bag I realized the guitar was very tidy and well finished - the opaque lacquer feels comfortable in the hand, and it does not even look like a glossy fad. All joints - neck - cover - sides - were accurate and clean. Tuners were easy to use. The height of the tongue was fine.

Everything works - easy to play - sound reasonably good - in price range quite good - these are now tastes - the guitar microphone works well - the only minus being in the slightly strange behavior of the tone controller - at both ends there is a sudden increase in the heart and there is an area where there is not much - is very aligned with the guitar itself.

The guitar is small, so the sound is equally small - however balanced throughout the neck. The structure may be somewhat rigid, which means that the metallic "Sproing" of languages ??will be a little bit over. But it is worth taking the price into account. It's unbelievable to compare with over 2,000 euros.

Reconcilability - job posting - finishing - all right.

Vote will give only four stars - a treat for myself because I'm spoiled at the beginning of the said F50R version. Perhaps the price should be proportional to four and a half, but when you can not.
